Dahlia my husband’s vs. choice

Hello! My husband Ben reallly loves the name Dahlia for a girl. The thing is, I’m not too keen. It’s a bit too airy fairy for me and if I was going in that direction I’d go with Alice (whimsical but still classic). Also, it reminds me of the murder of Elizabeth Short aka the Black Dahlia. It was literally the first thing I thought of when he said the name. Do you have any suggestions of other names he might love with that whimsical quality (minus the murder)? Thanks guys~ Violet

Genie's Mailbag

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
